Training and Pumping Practice Day
After the first sunny day yesterday the registration concluded and the opening ceremony was held at the mythic Eckmül lighthouse where the 17 competing nations paraded around this famous monument. Today it was the rain and lack of wind that dominated at the RS:X Youth World Championships practice race.
Despite weather conditions, some teams went straight on the water for a training session. Today’s programme: 2 starts for practice race by the Race Committee were signalled and sailors were trying out their pumping techniques.
The real racing begins tomorrow for the 130 young RS:X sailors (95 boys and 35 girls) in the qualifying series with the first start at 11:00.
